56 EXT. CHICAGO - STREET - DAY

The Chicago skyline can be seen. In a black SUV sit Michael,
Taylor and Junior. They are parked at a curb in front of a
vacant lot. Michael holds a pair of binoculars, sitting in
the front passenger seat looking down the street.

57 INT. CHICAGO - STREET - SUV - DAY

Michael look carefully down the street through the binoculars
to a three story tall red bricked apartment building down the
street. Junior is in the drivers seat with Taylor in the
backseat.

                  TAYLOR
        It’s at the end of the street. In
        front there’s a white sedan with
        one of our agents watching the
        front door. We have agents on the
        building just behind it looking
        into the windows of the target
        apartment. He’s home, not for long
        though. He placed a large backpack
        by the door and has put on a grey
        hooded sweater on.

                  JUNIOR
        Backpacks probably the bomb. We
        should take him.

Michael puts down the binoculars on the center console.

                  MICHAEL
        No. We’re not going corner him.
        Have the bomb squad ready and a
        team to go in but not till he
        leaves.

                  JUNIOR
        We should just take him. Be over
        with it.

                  MICHAEL
        And he’ll kill himself and whoever
        corners him. Evacuate the building
        first. We’ll follow him. Wait for
        him to place the bomb, then we take
        him. I want him alive.

Michael opens his door and begins to step out.

                  JUNIOR
        Where are you going?

                  MICHAEL
        A little closer.

He closes the door. Taylor moves to the passenger seat and
watches Michael walks down the street toward the apartment.
Junior looks annoyed.

                  TAYLOR
        He always likes to get closer.

                  JUNIOR
        The director told him dead or
        alive.

Taylor picks up the binoculars and looks out them.

58 EXT. CHICAGO - STREET - DAY

As Michael walks he quickly places an ear piece into his ear.
In his hand he holds a receiver end of a two way walkietalkie.
He raises the receiver up to his mouth.

                  MICHAEL
           (into the receiver)
        This is Agent Abbott. I’m walking
        up to the forward observation post.
        I am nearly to the intersection on
        thirty-fourth street in front of
        the target.

He casually walks down the street.

59 EXT. CHICAGO - 34TH STREET - DAY

Michael approaches the intersection and looks up at the
apartment building. He then looks up and down the street,
which has a little bit of traffic on it. Michael notices the
white sedan parked across the street from the front entrance
with a man in it. He walks up to the car and knocks on the
front passenger side window. The door unlocks and Michael
gets in.

60 INT. CHICAGO - 34TH STREET - CAR - DAY

Michael shuts the car door behind him. The man sitting in
the diver seat has an ear piece in his ear. His name is
WILSON.

                  WILSON
         Agent Abbott. I’m Wilson.

                  MICHAEL
         All’s quiet?

                  WILSON
         Yes sir.

Michael looks at the front door.

61 EXT. CHICAGO - BUILDING BEHIND APARTMENT - DAY

The roof over looks the red brick apartment building. The
building has a fire escape that descends from the third floor
windows of the bombers apartment down to the alley. A bullet
proof vest clad FBI SWAT SNIPER team member crouches behind
an air conditioning unit looking into the apartment. He
wears a head set and has his sniper riffle pointed toward the
windows of the apartment.

Through the windows a work area can be seen with tables and a
couch, an open doorway that looks into another room and the
front door with a large backpack next to it. A man can be
seen. It’s the Bomber. It is too dark through the windows
to see his face.

He puts on a baseball cap and pulls the hood of his sweat
shirt over his head. He walks to the front door puts the
backpack on and leaves the apartment.

                  FBI SWAT SNIPER
           (into his head set)
        He’s leaving.

62 INT. CHICAGO - 34TH STREET - CAR - DAY

Michael is raising his receiver up to his mouth with Wilson
carefully watching the door. Michael into his radio.

                  MICHAEL
        Let him leave the building.
           (to Wilson)
        How are you entering?

                  WILSON
        There’s a fire escape in back.
        They’ll enter there, quickly sweep
        for traps and let us in through the
        front.

                  MICHAEL
        There’s no one else in there with
        him?

                  WILSON
        No.

After a moment, the bomber emerges from the the front door,
his baseball cap and hood obscuring his face. He begins to
walk to the intersection, that Michael came from. Wilson
begins raising his radio receiver to his mouth and Michael
stops him.

                 MICHAEL
        I’ll follow.

Wilson nods.

                 WILSON
           (into the radio)
        Agent Abbott, will follow.

Michael glances back into the backseat, notices a Chicago
White Sox hat and grabs it. He then watches the Bomber
reaching the intersection and crossing the street and heading
toward Junior and Taylor.

                 MICHAEL
           (in the radio)
        Junior, he’s heading your way.
        There nothing like a big black SUV
        to tip him off.

The Bomber finishes crossing the street.

63 EXT. CHICAGO - STREET - DAY 

Junior is moving the SUV to a nearby alley.

64 INT. CHICAGO - 34TH STREET - CAR - DAY

Michael sits in the car watching the Bomber disappear from
the intersection. He then looks at the Sox hat with destain
and Wilson notices.

                 WILSON
         Cubs fan?

                 MICHAEL
         Royals. Call them in.

Michael gets out of the car and places the hat on.

65 EXT. CHICAGO - 34TH STREET - DAY

Michael closes the car door behind him and begins to walk to
the intersection. He raises his receiver to his mouth.

                   MICHAEL
        I’m loosing the ear piece and
        switching to the bluetooth.

Michael pulls the ear piece off, hides it in his collar, then
reaches into his pocket pulls out his blue tooth and places
it on his right ear. He then takes out his phone and dials
Taylor.

                  MICHAEL (CONT’D)
           (into his bluetooth)
        Parallel us.

                  TAYLOR (V.O.)
        Do you want us to call back up.

                  MICHAEL
        Yes.

He turns onto the street at the intersection. As he
disappears around the corner, two white vans drive up to the
front of the apartment. Wilson gets out of his car and walks
up to the front door. An FBI SWAT TEAMS swarm out of the
vans and walks up to him.

                  WILSON
        Alright. Clear the building first.
           (into his radio)
        Team Bravo, do not enter the unit
        till we give the all clear.

They enter the building.

        blocks.

                  MICHAEL

He continues on following.

radio in the other.

                  JUNIOR
        Does he want us to put someone at
        the train station?

                  TAYLOR
        Michael, do you need back up at the
        station?
           (listens then looks over
            at Junior)
        No.

Junior rings his hands on the steering wheel.

                  JUNIOR
           (under his breath)
        We should send them anyway’s. He
        needs to have back up.

                  TAYLOR (V.O.)
        They’re nearly done and about to go
        in.

                  MICHAEL
        He’s in the station.

                  TAYLOR (V.O.)
        Junior is insisting on back up.
        Once you get on that train, we
        might not be able to keep up.

they break one of window sending shattered glass to the

behind him.

         Can we enter yet?

                  JEREMY (V.O.)

                  MICHAEL
           (into his bluetooth)
         We’re entering the subway. Going
         to lose you.

All goes dark around the train as they enter the subway.

reads that the call is lost. He looks up at the Bomber,
looking carefully at the large heavy looking backpack on his
back.

76 INT. CHICAGO - SUV - DAY

Junior and Taylor drive along. Taylor pulls her cellphone
from her ear and places it in a cup holder on the center
console.

                  JUNIOR
         Where are they going to come up at?

                  TAYLOR
         We’ll have wait till he calls back.
         We still have sketchy contact with
         the other’s down there.

                  JUNIOR
         We should have just taken him down
         with a sniper.

Taylor gives him a look as Junior stops the SUV at a red
light.

77 INT. CHICAGO - RED LINE TRAIN - DAY

Michael’s still at the back of the train watching the Bomber.
He looks past the Bomber and sees the other two agents
sitting at the other end of the car. Michael shuffles in his
seat impatiently.

78 INT. CHICAGO - APARTMENT BUILDING - APT 33 - DAY

There are several AGENTS searching the apartment. Wilson
stands in the middle of the room with a member of the bomb
squad. His name is WALTERS.

                  WALTERS
         He was definitely making a bomb.
         So far we’ve found black powder and
         ball bearings. There’s no booby
         traps. I was expecting to be here
         for a few days finding them. We’re
         still sweeping the rest of the
         building.

Wilson nods at him, looks around the room and stops on a set
of four light switches. One of the switches has a piece of
tape over it.

                  WILSON
         Walters, I noticed in the kitchen
         one of the light switches is taped
         over, too.

                  WALTERS
         Yeah, there’s one in every room in
         the house. Dead switch I think.

                  WILSON
         Dead switch?

                  WALTERS
         Suicide switch. Get cornered, hit
         a switch and a bomb goes off.
         Killing you and whoever has you
         cornered. They bypass the circuit
         breaker.  It doesn’t lead to 
         anywhere inside this apartment. 
         We’re working on it.

Walters walks away into another room. Wilson looks around
noticing the closed door and welcome matte. He walks up to
it looking at the welcome matte curiously.

79 INT. CHICAGO - RED LINE TRAIN - DAY

The train begins to slow and then stops at a station. The
doors open and the bomber gets out. Michael casually gets
out of his seat heading for the door as the other two agents
do the same. Michael glances out to the station, which has a
platform with a few people on it There is a sign that reads,
HARRISON STREET.

As Michael reaches the door he spots the bomber heading for
the stairs leading up to the street. He glances back to one
of the other AGENTS and nods raising his receiver for his
radio up to his face.

80 INT. CHICAGO - APARTMENT BUILDING - APT 33 - DAY

Wilson still looks at the welcome matte and then looks up at
the door. Walters walks into the room.

                  WILSON
         What’s in this room?

                  WALTERS
         Closet. That’s where we found the
         black powder.

Wilson slowly reaches out and grabs the door handle. He
opens the door. The closet is empty. He looks down at the
welcome matte, which he now stands on.

81 EXT. CHICAGO - STATE STREET AND HARRISON - DAY

The street is busy with PEDESTRIANS and car traffic. There
is a subway entrance on the south side of the intersection,
which Michael and the two other AGENTS emerge from. They
look around.

Michael pulls his cellphone out and puts his bluetooth on his
ear. He dials Taylor. He looks up at a near by street sign.
Michael spots the Bomber, who is nearly a half a block ahead
of them on the north side of the intersection.

                  MICHAEL
           (into the bluetooth)
         Got him. He’s heading north on
         State Street.

Michael looks at one of the agents.

                  MICHAEL (CONT’D)
         Parallel him on the other side of
         the street.
           (to the other agent)
         Follow behind me.
           (to the bluetooth)
         Taylor, parallel us on another
         street. Stay close.

                  TAYLOR (V.O.)
         Copy that. We’re already on Wabash
         street. We’ll be catching up to
         you in a few minutes.

They move, following the bomber with one agents splitting off
from them and crossing the street.

82 INT. CHICAGO - APARTMENT BUILDING - APT 33 - DAY

Wilson now stands over one of the work benches, which has
grains of black powder on them and a few metal tubes. He
notices a trash can off to the side and looks in it, seeing a
few bags marked black powder. Walters is behind him.

                  WILSON
        How big is the bomb he was making?

                  WALTERS
        Most likely, he was making several
        bombs not one big one.

Wilson turns and looks back at the closet.

83 EXT. CHICAGO - VAN BUREN STREET - DAY

The EL Tracks pass over head in front of the WASHINGTON
LIBRARY. The noise from the passing trains is deafening.
Michael is following the bomber, watching him walk just a
half a block ahead. One of the AGENTS walks behind him with
the other on the other side of the street a little closer to
the Bomber.

84 INT. CHICAGO - APARTMENT BUILDING - APT 33 DAY

Wilson still stands staring at the closet with a muddled
look. He walks over to closet with Walters watching him
curiously.

                  WALTERS
        What is it, sir?

Wilson reaches the closet and looks in again, kicking the
matte slightly as he stops.

                  WILSON
        Not sure. Just weird that there’s
        a matte in front of this closet.

Wilson looks down at the matte and sees a cut in the floor
board. He slowly reaches down, picks up the matte and a six
by six square cut into the floor. Walters walks up and
kneels looking closely at it.

                  WALTERS
        Hiding spot?

                  WILSON
        Open it up.

Walters pulls out a knife and begins prying at the floor
board with it.

85 EXT. CHICAGO - DEARBORN STREET AND JACKSON - DAY

The street is busy with traffic and the sidewalks are full of
PEOPLE. The bomber is crossing Jackson street passing
between two tall black skyscrapers marked, FEDERAL BUILDING.
Michael is closing in on the bomber, just twenty feet or so
behind him. There is a large plaza in front of one of
building. One of the agents walks directly across the street
to the plaza and parallels the Bomber.

The Bomber is reaching into his pocket. Michael watches
carefully. The Bomber pulls out a cell phone and begins
dialing.

86 INT. CHICAGO - APARTMENT BUILDING - APT 33 - DAY

Wilson watches Walters carefully pry up the floorboard in
front of the closet. After lifting up the board he sets
piece of wood off to the side and they look in.

Wilson face sinks as he looks into the hole in the floor.

There is a bomb in the floor connected to a cellphone.
Walters stands slowly staring at the bomb with a sick look on
his face.

                  WILSON
           (barley able to talk
            audibly)
        Clear the building.
           (clears his throat)
        CLEAR IT NOW! EVERYONE OUT!

87 EXT. CHICAGO - DEARBORN STREET AND JACKSON - DAY

The Bomber has just finished dialing with his thumb over the
send button. Michael glances over to the AGENT across the
street from the Bomber. He has a hand up to his ear piece
with a concerned look on his face. Michael then glances
behind him to the other AGENT, who also looks concerned.

                  MICHAEL
           (into his bluetooth)
       Taylor. What’s going on?

                  TAYLOR (V.O.)
       They said they just found a bomb
       with a remote detonator inside the
       apartment.

                  JUNIOR (V.O.)
           (panicked in the
            background)
       Take him out!

                  MICHAEL

91 EXT. CHICAGO - DEARBORN STREET AND JACKSON - DAY

The BOOM from the explosion echoes out and the PEDESTRIANS
and the car traffic stops. All of the pedestrians along with
Michael tuns back and look south down Dearborn Street. A
large fireball rises up into the air. SCREAMS can be heard
from some of the pedestrians. Michael looks on in disbelief.

One of the AGENTS stands directly in front of him and is also
watching the fireball. Michael pulls out his gun and turns
around toward the Bomber just fifteen feet away. Michael
raises his gun at the Bomber.

The Bomber stand holding a panicked BUSINESS WOMAN hostage.
The Bomber holds a gun pointed at Michael. His face is
shrouded in darkness from the cap and hood. The agent across
the street has his gun drawn and pointed at the Bomber.

                  MICHAEL
        LET HER GO! LET HER GO, NOW!

Michael begins stepping toward him slowly. The agent behind
Michael pulls his gun and also draws in closer to the Bomber.

in front of traffic. Cars slam on their breaks and swerve to
avoid him. He disappears around the corner. Michael glances
up at the street sign on the corner.

on down Adams Street.

                  TAYLOR

        He set us up, didn’t he?

                  MICHAEL

        Two, Maybe three hours. And before
        you ask I already have someone on
        the security cameras inside. He’s
        still in there.

Michael sighs loudly.
